After the most amazing time in Mongolia (more about that in the blog to follow) we are really sad to leave this special place, but are looking forward to boarding our train to Beijing in the morning. Internet access is likely to be a bit more ‘few and far’ between, and social media quite restricted, so we wanted to take this opportunity to say a big thank you!
Sending stories back about our trip has been different for us this time round. In the past we have sent big round-robin emails, but this time we thought we would blog and see how that went.
I have heard numerous comments from people in the past (not always positive!) about people always putting things on Facebook and Twitter about their travels, so we thought the best thing to do would be to start up ‘The Smart Way Round’ Facebook page. We invited all of our friends to ‘like’ the page, that way people could either opt in or out of our travel updates. At the time it all felt rather self-indulgent and like we were promoting ourselves which was not the way it was intended at all! In short, we were blown away with the response we got so maybe more people are interested in our travels than we first believed!
So above all this is just a big THANK YOU for your support both before and during our journey. We will continue to post blogs were we can, although it may not be possible to post these on Facebook. You can always sign up for email updates via ‘The Smart Way Round’ blog page, or alternatively we will be back on Social Media as soon as possible (Dean can’t be parted with Twitter for too long)!
For now, thank you and see you in China (you better pinch me as it doesn’t seem possible)!
Loving the blogs. Pleased to say Andrew’s Bec has got her Visa!!!!!!
I am going to Russia next year so will re-read your comments very carefully.
Hi guys, loving all the emails about your travels. Glad you’re having such a fab time & enjoy Beijing. I went in January & it was very cold & pollution was rife but the Wall was absolutely stunning & way above some of the clouds so make sure your camera is ready to go.
Love to you both, Sarah & Tim xx
Don’t ever think it’s self indulgent guys…it would be wrong to not share such great stories. Safe travels, counting down till March when we see you again! Bxx
